Vacuum Tube - 6106 / 5Y3WGT, Rectifier, Full Wave
New-Old-Stock (NOS) tube.
This full-wave, high-vacuum rectifier is specifically designed for aircraft, military, and industrial applications where freedom from early failures, long service life, and uniform operating characteristics are extremely important. Heavy gauge heater construction together with a pure alumina insulator reduces the likelihood of heater failure. A large area cathode operating at moderate temperatures gives longer service life and freedom from arc-overs.
This tube is designed to replace the 5Y3GT and similar types in applications where severe environmental conditions are encountered, especially in airborn equipment. The cathode type structure instead of a filament structure insures against filament breakage under shock and vibration. The arc-resistant, compound-filled, melamine base with inter-pin barriers permits operation to an altitude of 80,000 feet.
